Sleepless Nights


Sleep, sleeping, to sleep. Deep sleep, Need sleep, Rem sleep, Can’t sleep. Longing for this simple need My tired mind can only plead. Just one long night in Neverland That sweet dream would be so grand The sheep counted are without number Still no sign of precious slumber At last exhaustion rules the day On a cloud of bliss I slip away...

    I often become so obsessed with sleep, that that is probably the biggest reason it eludes me! (they call me a worry-wart around my house!) Love this poem......it fits!!
